The East Stroudsburg State graduate said he planned to discuss the pink locker rooms with his players this week before the Nittany Lions arrived in Iowa City. With the way that quarterback Trace McSorley had played, however, it was hard to feel wholly confident in what he was going to be able to do.
Penn State went to work, covering 65 yards in 12 plays to score the game-winning points as the clock hit triple zeros.
The Nittany Lions have prepared with plenty of loud music on the practice field this week, attempting to simulate the environment that will greet Penn State tonight.
Play of the game: On fourth-and-goal from the Iowa 7, Trace McSorley threaded a touchdown pass through traffic to Juwan Johnson as time expired. The Hawkeyes had only one first down until the 4:34 mark of the second period.
How stinkin' good is Josey Jewell? And, honestly, this is a game Penn State deserved to win. He connected on every pass he attempted in the first half, tossed just three incompletions on the night, threw for 201 yards and two touchdowns and averaged - averaged - 16.8 yards per attempt. Del Rio then marched the Gators 58 yards for the winning score to stun a blue-clad sellout crowd of 61,000 hungry to see Kentucky end a generation of frustration against the Gators.

Penn State's Saquon Barkley rushed for a career-high 211 yards and one touchdown.
Now, Ferentz is trying to decode Barkley's 85-yard touchdown catch against Georgia State last week and what that might mean for his defense.
"I'm going to talk to our guys about it being a really, really nice gesture by the University of Iowa to welcome Penn State since our original school colors are pink and black, " Franklin said.
Barkley was the only constant good thing for Penn State, as they more than doubled Iowa's offensive output yet barely squeaked out a win.
Stevens, who pushed McSorley for the starting job late into training camp last season, offers an intriguing option for an offense already with stars in Mike Gesicki and Heisman candidate Saquon Barkley. The sophomore's passes early on seemed adrenaline-filled, a byproduct of the moment, and were initially too hot to handle. On a side note, though, McSorley punting the ball after taking a knee to end the game was uncalled for.
He'll be better in the future because of the experience he gained against an aggressive Penn State defense which tested Stanley physically and mentally.
Iowa's inconsistency extended to special teams. Amani Hooker recorded 13 tackles in his first career start, and Nelson added 2½ sacks, five total tackles and a blocked field goal.
Best effort: Iowa safety Amani Hooker stopped Barkley in the open field after a 12-yard gain at the Hawkeyes' 10, saving a touchdown and leading to a first-quarter field goal.
